Default Kentucky Long Rifle or Hawken one?

Hello everybody,

I haven't done any muzzleload shooting so far, but just cannot stop thinking about perkussion muzzleloader rifle. Something of a classic one, probably Kentucky Long rifle or a Hawken... Intended use would be obviously to hunt deer (we have extended seasons for muzzleloaders + muzzleloaders are allowed around the city like shotguns but unlike regular rifles - DNR doesn't want many hunters with AR15 around the city). So, shooting straight in 100-200 yrds range (at least to hit into the barn wall from outside the barn) is a definite must, but I also would like to think of it as a piece of history. Maybe to hang around my headquarters (down in the basement office) during the rest of the year...
Does anyone hunt with either of them, can you share your experiences with those classic ones. Which one would you recommend?

Thanks! I'd appreciate every bit of information.
